"Brain-washing - A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics", by Lavrent Pavlovich Beria (1899 to 1953)

Written by John (the other John).


I recently read the above book by Lavrent Beria (who was head of the secret police under Joseph Stalin, and he also oversaw the Great Purge). The book was about psychopolitics, which essentially discusses how to brainwash people to hate their country, their history, religion, family, and themselves. Psychopolitics is the epitome of mental-warfare.

At any other previous moment in our own lives, I would say that his writings are a tad bit over-the-top; but today in this day of age in modern politics, everything I read is frightfully true about promoting self-hatred, in suppressing adverse opinions, and in promoting an all-powerful State. The typical means to accomplish this is by virtue-signaling so they appear to being superior AND by labeling their adversaries as “hateful”, “bigoted”, “racist”, “Islamaphobe”, “N@z!”, “xenophobe”, “misogynist”, “homophobe”, etc…; essentially, to dehumanize and degrade their opponents. As we know, those who are the target of these insults are not actually what they are accused of, but instead the modus operandi of Socialists is:

  1. to “transfer”1 their own historical sins onto their God-fearing adversaries who don’t retaliate due their Christian belief of “Turn the Other Cheek”, and
  2. to cause chaos by pursuing a policy of “cultural hegemony”, so they could manipulate and mold the culture of that society (the beliefs, explanations, perceptions, values, and morals).2

What we are experiencing today is not occurring by chance, nor is it the mere latest fad; instead, this has been a strategized coup for nearly a century by the lowest form of life; a Socialist! If we have any hope of survival, we must first acknowledge and learn the strategy of our enemy. So below I copy and pasted select portions of this book. (The below are not my sayings, they are all quotes of the author Lavrent Pavlovich Beria):

By psychopolitics our chief goals are effectively carried forward. To produce a maximum of chaos in the culture of the enemy is our first most important step. Our fruits are grown in chaos, distrust, economic depression, and scientific turmoil. At last a weary populace can seek peace only in our offered Communist State, at last only communism can resolve the problems of the masses....

You must labor until we have dominion over the minds and bodies of every important person in your nation....

You can cripple the efficiency of leaders by striking insanity into their families through the use of drugs....

Use the courts, use the judges, use the Constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends....

The definition of Psychopolitics follows. Psychopolitics is the art and science of asserting and maintaining dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through "mental healing."...

The tenets of rugged individualism, personal determinism, self-will, imagination, and personal creativeness held by the masses are equally antipathetic to the good of the Greater State. These willful and unaligned forces are no more than illnesses which will bring about disaffection, disunity, and at length the collapse of the group to which the individual is attached....

The masses must at last come to believe that only excessive taxation of the rich can relieve them of the "burdensome leisure class" and can thus be brought to accept such a thing as an income tax, a Marxist principle smoothly slid into the Capitalistic framework in 1909 in the United States....

One of the first and foremost missions of the psychopolitician is to make an attack upon communism and insanity synonymous. It should become the definition of insanity, of the paranoid variety, that "A paranoid believes he is being attacked by Communists." Thus, the support of the individual so attacking communism will fall away and wither....

This is destroyed by making a family unit economically non-dependent, by lessening the value of marriage, by making an easiness of divorce and by raising children wherever possible by the State. The next loyalty is to his friends and local environment. This is destroyed by lowering his trust through bringing about rumors concerning him, allegedly perpetrated by his fellows or the town or village authorities....

By making drugs of various kinds readily available, by giving the teenager alcohol, by praising his wildness, by stimulating him with sex literature and advertising to him or her practices taught at the Sexpol, the psychopolitical operator can create the necessary attitude of chaos, idleness, and worthlessness that will be the matrix to give the teenager complete freedom everywhere—communism....

While this might require many decades to achieve, Capitalism’s short-termed view will never envision the length of the time frame across which we can plan...

If we can effectively kill the national pride and patriotism of just one generation we will have won that country. Therefore, we must keep up a continual barrage of propaganda abroad to undermine the loyalty of the citizens in general and the teenager in particular....

Creating a greed for drugs, sexual misbehavior, and uncontrolled freedom, while presenting this to them as a benefit of communism, will easily bring about our chosen alignment....

Only when a person has been beaten, punished, and mercilessly hammered, can hypnotism upon him be guaranteed to be effective.... Given enough punishment, all people in any time and place are susceptible to hypnotism. In other words, the addition of force makes hypnotism uniformly effective...

A certain amount of fear or terror must be engendered in the person under treatment so that this person will then take orders immediately, completely, and unquestioningly, from the psychopolitical operative, and so be able to influence the actions of the person who is to be reached....

And, should anyone unmask a psychopolitical operative, the operative should at once declare the whole thing to be a physical impossibility and use his authoritative position to discount any accusation….Should any writings of Psychopolitics come to view, it is only necessary to brand them a hoax and laugh them out of existence. Thus, psychopolitical activities are easy to defend....

Difficulty in breaking horses is occasioned only when light punishments are administered. You often hear some mawkish sentimentality about "breaking the spirit", but what you want here is an obedient horse, and sufficient brutality brings about an obedient horse....

The occasioning of sexual liaison between females of a target family and well-chosen males, under the control of the psychopolitical operative, must be demonstrated to be possible with complete security for the psychopolitical operative, thus putting into his hands an excellent weapon for the breaking down of familial relations and consequent public disgrace for the psychopolitical target....

Defamation is the best and foremost weapon of Psychopolitics on the broad field. Continual and constant degradation of national leaders, national institutions, national practices, and national heroes must be systematically carried out....

There is a curve of degradation that leads downward to a point where the endurance of an individual is almost at an end, and any sudden action toward him will place him in a state of shock. Similarly, a soldier held prisoner can be abused, denied, defamed, and degraded until the slightest motion on the part of his captors will cause him to flinch...

By lowering the endurance of a person, a group, or a nation, and by constant degradation and defamation, a state of shock can be induced that will cause an adequate response to any command....

The best approach toward degradation in its first stages is the propaganda of "scientific approach" to Man. Man must be consistently demonstrated to be a mechanism without individuality, and the idea must be programmed into a populace under attack that Man’s individualistic reactions are the products of mental derangement. The populace must be made to believe that every individual within it who rebels in any way, shape, or form against efforts and activities to enslave the whole, must be considered to be a deranged person whose eccentricities are neurotic or insane, and who must be referred at once to the treatment of a psychopolitician (licensed as a mental healer)...

They must be taught to frown upon ideas, upon individual endeavor....

The officials of the government, students, readers, partakers and providers of entertainment, must all be indoctrinated, by whatever means, into the complete belief that the restless, the ambitious, the natural leaders, are suffering from environmental maladjustments, which can be healed only by recourse to psychopolitical operatives in the guise of mental healers....

Religion must be made unfashionable by our demonstrating broadly, through psychopolitical indoctrination, that the soul is nonexistent, and that Man is an animal…Thus, there must be no standing belief in the church, and the power of the church must be denied at every opportunity....

Should anyone attempt to expose psychotherapy as a psychopolitical activity, the best defense is calling into question the sanity of the attacker....

As every chair of psychology in the United States is occupied by persons connected with us, or who can be influenced by persons connected with us, the constant employment of such texts is guaranteed. They are given an authoritative ring, and they are carefully taught....

You must work until "religion" is synonymous with "insanity". You must work until the officials of city, county, and state governments will not think twice before they pounce upon religious groups as public enemies....

The spread of communism has never been by force of battle, but by conquest of the mind.

Notes:
1 Dr. Sigmund Freud did a study on the theory of “transference”, which is when a person “transfers” or redirects his/her actions upon someone else. A person who does this is generally void of reality; one living in a delusional fantasy.
2 This concept of “cultural hegemony” was created by Antonio Gramsci (an imprisoned Italian Communist) in the 1920’s.
